Friday, July 1, is the beginning of our annual Tools for School program.  Throughout the month of July, we are collecting donations at 2140, Holbrook, Hamtramck, MI 48212.  There will be a basket outside the building where the supplies can be dropped off.  On the last Saturday in August, the supplies will be distributed kids in the area who need the supplies to start the school year so they will not fall behind.

Although we need school supplies it is important that the supplies are brand new.  This is necessary because used supplies may be defective and that would set the student(s) back in their efforts to complete their lesson plan(s).  The supplies that are needed can be found in the stationary section of any store.  Among the various supplies that are needed include:

  • Pencils
  • Pens
  • Backpacks
  • Glue
  • Rulers
  • Crayons
  • Notebook Paper
  • Colored Pencils

These are the most important items that we need, but anything that you can provide would be welcome.  The more supplies that we get the more we will be able to help the community.  We thank you in advance for your participation and for taking the time to read this post.
